Hobnobbing with the literary set

The other night, the family and I went to see Tawni O’Dell, author of Back Roads (featured by Oprah), Coal Run, and Sister Mine. These books are all set in (fictitious) contemporary Western Pennsylvania coal towns. Mrs. O’Dell is from the area herself, and worked out of state for years before returning home as an author. She was very gracious, even naming our son her “youngest fan.” If you haven’t read her books, I recommend them, but be warned – they are literature, and not quick reads!
